When the soul has had enough

Sometimes you just have to choose yourself

over others.

At times people leave you with no choice…

The guilt might get you for a while

but don’t let it eat you whole.

Remember there is only so much we can do

for someone,

while ignoring and shutting down ourselves.

There comes a point

where no matter how much you love,

how many more sacrifices

you are willing to make,

your soul refuses play along.

It had silently been witnessing

all the self damage;

all that – you were too ignorant to notice..

And finally you are forced

to put an end to it.

It hurts, its painful..

yet you stop.

Thats when for your own sake

it does this favor

and sets you free.
